A man in Ukraine caused authorities to launch murder investigations after cutting off his infected right foot using a kitchen knife. Without doubt, this is a very dicey situation as the man had 'murdered' what belonged to him.
Vladimir Tverdokhleb said his foot was infected and rotten. Hence, the only way he could get rid of the smell was by chopping it off.
However, due to certain circumstances, he could not manage to do it the proper way. He had to improvise and go the hard route.
But then, his action has stirred several existential question. One of which is, "did he commit murder or did he do what is right?"
According to Daily Mail, the 62-year-old man got rid of his limb while the wife was watching and did not take any painkillers before or after the procedure.
After amputating his infected foot, Vladimir threw it in the trash where a neighbour’s dog picked it.
The dog then took the dismembered foot to its owner’s place where it planned to dig in and enjoy its ‘meal.’
A curious resident then spotted the black foot and immediately wondered what it could be. After looking closely the resident, Irina, noticed toes and nails and immediately realised it was a human body part.
“At first I could not make what was it. Then I saw toes and nails and realised it was a human body part. I felt sick,” she said.
She called the police who launched a murder investigation after suspecting the foot could belong to a murder victim.

However, the investigations were stopped when Vladimir was discovered to be the owner of the rotten foot. Vladimir was rushed to hospital after his limb got inflamed. When asked why he took matters into his own hands, he said he could not afford t get the foot amputated in a hospital.
